Currently a college professor, I hold a PhD in organic Chemistry and a BS in chemistry Education. I have 10 year experience in chemistry teaching including 1 year in high school and 9 year in college. I have a love for teaching and very patient with my students, 10 YEARS OF TEACHING both low level and advanced level chemistry, including high school chemistry, introductory chemistry, general chemistry and organic chemistry, gave me wonderful experience in how to show students easy and fun ways to understand difficult concepts in chemistry.
For beginners of chemistry, my goal is to try to help them fall in love with chemistry. For the advanced students, I want to rekindle that sense of wonder that originally led them to the study of chemistry. To this end, I try to develop dynamic, cogent lectures that incorporate the necessary basics with examples drawn from common experience. In order to stimulate the interest of the students, I occasionally incorporate discussions of advanced concepts and practical application that the students can understand in their own way. I also draw on my own experiences as a student in order to understand the typical problem areas for my student.
I also noticed as an experience math skill is a big obstacle for student in learning chemistry. Mathematical calculations are absolutely necessary to explore important concepts in chemistry. Without some basic mathematics skills, these calculations, and therefore chemistry itself, will be extremely difficult. That is the reason I always want to review the student's math skill and help them build up math skills that are necessary in learning chemistry.
